Visual Data Mining

Here’s one that should get you thinking about presenting your data in a very different way.

Using Tableau’s Superstore dataset as the source, each bubble is a product (disaggregated data). Size is sales amount. Color is profit. Each column is a department.

The goal of this view is to provoke interaction. A colleague here at Tableau called it visual data mining and I agree. There is a lot going on in one screen that does truly provide you with a unique view, which could lead to unique insight!
